Class 1

Teachers – Mrs Rachel Garner & Mrs Jo Tetlow

Summer Term 2018 – Second Half

Where has the year gone? In the final half term of this school year Class 1 will be looking at Minibeasts. Below is our topic information – we hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this half term.

We continue to be very well supported by parents sparing a half hour here and there to hear our children read in the mornings; thank you if you have been able to help – it makes a notable difference in readiness to read.

We are setting up a garden role play so any fake bunches of flowers that you might be getting rid of would be appreciated.

Foundation Stage:


Year 1:

Before we know it, our Foundation Stage children will be Year 1s and where possible we are trying to prepare them for Year 1 expectations and likewise our Year 1s will be Year 2s.

If they don’t do already, it is a good idea to get your child to sort out their own bits and pieces in the morning – snack, water bottle, coat etc – so that they have greater independence, ready for September.

If at all possible, see if they can build up to entering the class alone – obviously you are always welcome but it’s an idea to be as prepared as possible for the new school year in September. Many thanks for this

On a similar note, although your help with changing for PE on a Friday has been invaluable and very much appreciated, please step back from this too – again, to develop greater independence.

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions or if you need to tell us anything and do remember to let us know if someone new is collecting your child from school. We need to be informed of this so we are confident that we are sending your child home with the right person.

Thank you for your support

Jo Tetlow and Rachel Garner
